Sandy,
It is hard to maintain a healthy diet when life is in crisis. Hope he feels better soon and you get some much needed rest. And that your weather has cooled off to a tolerable temperature! We've had only two days of school in the past two weeks because of cold, ice and snow! Except for not being able to wear a loin cloth(lol), the weather hasn't been too much of an inconvenience(haven't lost power). We're pretty used to the cold this time of year, even got a jump on spring cleaning, organized the pantry. That's why were having Grandma Kingscott's Super Soup for dinner! Everything in the pantry healthy and wholesome(except I'm out of barley :o), and a ton of yummy veggies! Think I'll make gluten free corn bread too.

Gees, it's already 9:25 and Tiny hasn't asked to come over yet, better find out what's going on.

Here's to healthy eating! :bana:

Love,
Kim

Hi Kim,
We heard about the polar vortex over here and saw photos of all the snow. I guess you all ate sitting right in the middle of where it stretches down out of Canada every year. In Ohio we were often on the fringes of such weather... and I remember it was not fun.

Actually I think I have become rather soft where heat is concerned. I mean 80's are manageable right and I think that is where we are sitting right now lol so don't pay any attention to my whining.

I think clearing out th food cabinets an getting rid of the unhealthy stuff would be the way to go...Then filling it with yummy healthy stuff. We're doing better but still sometimes crave fish and chips etc...

Yep definitely going to try some of these latest recipes...

Looks like a storm is brewing now better check the laundry. (hanging it outside)
love,
Sandy

"Despite its name, wild rice is not rice at all. :o
Although it is the seed of an aquatic grass, just like rice, it's not directly related to rice."

:idea: ... which reminds me ...
Eggs are not dairy (from birds - not cows), :roll:
but are "dairy" by typical residence (cow farms)
and by original delivery: milkmen/women. 8)

Amigo,
Lol! Our language is filled with comical contradictions and weird associations. :roll What does that tell you about us?

I'm craving a little wild rice tonight after reading your post, Rod. I doubt that was the reasoning you posted. LOL But maybe there is a nutritional need in me that the wild rice prompting will provided. Have a good day you guys...

love,
Sandy

Re: https://prostate.net/articles/antioxida ... ysfunction

"Antioxidants help with erectile dysfunction by attacking free radicals,
which destroy a substance called nitric oxide that is instrumental in promoting an erection."
"Research shows that nitric oxide is instrumental in achieving an erection, and that increasing production
of this substance is helpful in managing erectile dysfunction." 8)

Note the subtle humor by contrast: “the problem is huge". ;)

So ... What to eat :?: :!:
Start with this list: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/ni ... #section11

Garlicky Beets with Pomegranate Syrup would be inspirational! Try over wild rice, oysters on the side ...
and a generous Merlot Sipper with Elderberry syrup. But where's the beef :?: (“the problem is huge") :roll:

:sunny: A diabetes discovery journey ...

Re: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/201 ... 789116002/

"Atkins also focuses on net carbs.
Instead of counting all carbs as the same, this diet takes fiber and sugars into account,
whereas paleo and keto don't. So if a product has 10 grams of carbs, but 3 grams of fiber
and 1 gram of sugar, then your net carbs would be 6 grams."

:!: Important tip since fiber is a necessary nutrient and causes slower carb digestion.
As for a specific diet, the Mediteranean Diet is still maintaining popularity. ;)

:idea: Also, this "bottom line" keeps appearing in discussions about weight loss:
To gain weight, consume more calories than you burn with physical activity.

Rod :)

Hot seedy bath ... :roll:

:idea: Soak raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds in hot, slightly salty water 5-10 min.
to make them more taste/texture complementary to hot dishes. ;)

Hot steamy eggs ... :roll

Cracked and steamed eggs + egg whites (e.g., double boiler) last much longer
when refrigerated; facilitate preparation of Super EZ Egg Salad! 8)

Cruciferous veggies ... :roll

Re: https://www.investmentwatchblog.com/bro ... ever-find/

"However, those who consumed greater amounts of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli had a relatively lower risk. They attributed this effect to the ability of broccoli to enhance the activity of detoxifying enzymes in the liver." :o

Note that broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable, suggesting that other cruciferous veggies provide similar benefits: :finger:
http://www.aicr.org/foods-that-fight-ca ... erous.html

Super convenient Broccoli Bowl ... :roll

Place a serving of canned (rinsed & drained) black beans in a deep bowl,
sprinkle on garlic granules, then layer with bite-size broccoli pieces,
red bell pepper, and top with chopped sweet onion. :roll

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. To heat, remove plastic wrap,
cover, and microwave about 4 min. (for al dente). Steam from veggies
helps minimize time in the microwave. And the raw onion seems
to help the pre-cook Bowl last longer in the fridge. :o

:idea: Speaking of super convenient "Broccoli Bowl" ...

Try a super convenient Polenta Bowl:
(uses just-cooked steamed eggs)

In a medium saucepan, simmer 1 cup rinsed polenta (ground corn)
with 1 cup water, stirring frequently. When mixture is thick,
stir in 1/4 tsp garlic granules, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp virgin olive oil;
then fold in 1 1/2 cups each chopped sweet onion and asparagus
(both previously microwaved to al dente). ;)

:arrow: Place one cooked egg + whites in bottom of a bowl,
then top with a generous serving of Veggie Polenta.
Cover with plastic wrap, cool, then refrigerate.

To cook, remove plastic wrap, cover, microwave about 3 min.
Optional: Then sprinkle on salt & pepper; drizzle on olive oil. :roll
Very tasty served with cherry tomatoes!

Tip: Onion and asparagus provide inulin, a pre-biotic fiber. 8)

Re: https://www.nowfoods.com/supplements/in ... er-organic

Who knew :?: :!:
:scratch: Sprinkle inulin on low fat, low sugar ice cream for better nutrition
(inulin adds diabetes-friendly pre-biotic fiber and mild sweetness). ;)

Thanks for the latest super, "bowl recipes", Rod. I might fix a couple of those with polenta before going to bed tonight. Something to look forward to tomorrow. :D

We saw a piece on our news speaking of the value of 500 mg of Vitamin C taken twice a day to help control blood sugars. The patients were seeing the benefits...but they warned the viewing public to not disregard their diabetes medicine just yet. :)

:scratch: Who knew :?: :!:

Pre-packaged ground turkey (usually a flat block)
can be baked like faux sausage: Preheat oven to 350F,
lightly coat both sides of turkey "patty" with olive oil,
generously sprinkle top of patty with garlic granules
and ground sage, then bake 45 min.

:idea: Tips: Separate patty into strips before baking.
Pour off moisture and "stuff" that collects in the pan
5 min. before removing turkey patty from oven.

:idea: The Red Beans on Toast can alternate with Black Beans on Toast:
substitute 15oz can black beans with dried oregano instead of dried parsley.
...and both of these upgrade when topped with shredded cheese! :roll

Who knew :?: :!:
These mixtures make good filling for pita bread and tacos. ;)

Rod :)
